I’m writing this novel in islands…the ending’s finished, section two’s started, but I’ve halted on it so I can write ahead in section one…like building a bridge made of sly goblins and thirsty draculas. At least I left off on an exciting part of section two!
…and we’re still setting up for the main plot! DUHANG.
Quite a change from some of my past work, where at 20, 30K, I was like, “OK, it’s wrapping up! c:”
Whoo! My latest story, A Gingersnap Cat Christmas, just hit 10,000 words! Since I want it finished by Thanksgiving, I’ve been trying to write on it even on days when I’m Not Feeling It™. So far, it’s working! Even on my argleblargle days I’m managing between 700-1400 words an hour. Stay tuned to see if I manage this audacious goal!
I wrote about the writing tracker(s) I use in a previous post. But then I saw this and thought other writers might find it helpful! The basic spreadsheet is free!
I’m pleased! It’ll be nice to have a novella to sell! I *think* I’m heading towards the end, though I have no idea how it’s gonna come together. Guess that’s the exciting part!
Ugghghghg then I gotta do the cover ughghghghgh it’s not a ROMANCE romance or even a rom-com but it’s not a cozy mystery but it’s clean and fun like one… A magical comic love story, is what I call it.
I’ve got more to type on it, but I don’t feel like working on it this second.
I bought another Leuchtturm Master Ruled Notebook from Amazon (233 pages). But the seller sent me a Leuchtturm SLIM, which only has 120 pages! I can write 100 page in under a month.
So I just sent them a complaint. I’ve already written in it–but I wouldn’ta bought it if I’d known it was a SLIM.
Pretty annoyed, too, paying a full-size notebook price and only getting half the pages. Grr! (Guess that’s another way they could make it up to me–send me another SLIM for free.)
Currently typing up a false start (to get an accurate word count for the 28th), but then I’ll type the real ending. Then I should probably take a break and then type up some more SCVK edits.
